What is a Purple Potato?
- These are small to medium sized with a dark brownish-violet, thin skin and a bright purple flesh. The bright interior color mellows with cooking. Purple potatoes get their vibrant color from certain minerals in the soil. They are similar in taste to russets.
How to Eat
- Bake, boil, mash, fry, or use in potato salads. They will loose much of the purple color after cooking.
- Rich in antioxidants.
How to Choose
- Choose firm, non-sprouting potatoes.
How to Store
- Store in a cool, dry, dark, well-vented area up to 1 month.
